Recipe Directions

WARNING: This project and these instructions have been written for someone who has experience making soap and knows the potential dangers due to working with sodium hydroxide. It will not outline all safety methods of working with dangerous chemicals, it is simply a soap recipe for advanced soap makers.
  1. Pour the Lye into the Water. Carefully mix in a well-ventilated area and set aside to cool while you prepare your remaining oils.
  2. Add all the Oils and Butters to glass measuring cup and melt in the microwave. Add Buttermilk Powder and blend in. Set aside. 
  3. Measure Fragrance Oil and set aside.
  4. When both the lye mixture and the oils are 100°F or below, pour the lye mixture into the oils. Stick blend until you reach a thin trace. Add Fragrance Oil and blend until you reach a medium-thin trace.
  5. Pour the soap batter into the mold and tap the mold on the counter to release any air bubbles. Texture top as desired.
  6. Allow to set for 24 hours or longer until soap is firm enough to unmold. Unmold and slice. Let soap cure 4-6 weeks. Package and label accordingly.
